I have no idea about Rodda, but I have used SW. It is good paint and yes,
you usually get better result with the more expensive paints. Less runs,
drips, better coverage. How important is it to risk a crappy job to save
$10 a room? Try a gallon of each in different rooms and decide yourself.
Don't seem to have Dunn-Edwards in this area. The choice appears to be
Rodda or Valspar or Sherwin-Williams. Sherwin-Williams appears to be the
most expensive. Its on sale this month at $29. I am going to buy 10
gallons or so in the morning.
Never hear of Rodda... but you tell me: if it was as good as the S-W paint, do
you *really* think they'd be selling it for TEN BUCKS a gallon less?
I've used a *lot* of S-W paint over the years, and *never* had *any* cause for
complaint with it. It's really good paint. Goes on easily, covers well, very
Cheap paint is no bargain.
Which is less expensive: a $22/gallon premium paint that does the job with one
gallon, or a $12/gallon "budget" paint that requires two gallons to cover?
